Various Cheats and Hints

Ammo Location
When playing part 3 - 'A mob war', and you've shot all the cleaners and mafia members in the street. Continue down the street past the door where the guy with a shotgun appears and turn left to face a road barricade. You will see one of those explosive barrels next to a set of shutters. Shoot the barrel and the explosion will knock down the shutters revealing boxes filled with grenades and striker ammo

Mad policemen:
In the chapter where Max is suspended inside the police station, go into the rec-room. There will be two policemen sitting on a couch watching television. Walk up to the television and shut it off. The policemen will make comments to Max and they will get mad at him, but will not actually do anything.

Theme song:
Play the piano with the dead body on top of it. Max will attempt to play his theme song.

Special ending:
Successfully complete the game in Dead On Arrival mode.

Secret Video
In Chapter 7 continued of Part 1, after you kill Kaufman and his henchmen at the end of the level, go back into the vacant apartment you went through to reach the lobby where you fought Kaufman. In the apartment, you should find a home-theatre system. Turn on the flat screen TV. You will see a short video.

Unlock All Modes
Enter the following during game play:
X, X, X, A, Left, Right, Left, Right, X, X, X, A, Left, Right, Left, Right

Completion bonuses:
Complete the game under the "Detective" difficulty setting to unlock the Hard Boiled, New York Minute, and Dead Man Walking modes. Complete the game under the "Hard-Boiled" difficulty setting to unlock Dead On Arrival mode.

Part 1, Chapter 6: Kung Fu poster:
Go through the fun house until you reach Mona's hideout. Once inside, look around Mona's gym area and should find a poster of the famous Max Payne Mod "Kung Fu" by Kenneth Yeung.

Restore health
Save during game play, then return to the main menu. Load the game and you will have full health when you resume.

Blowing Up: Explore the construction site
In the Blowing Up level, when you get out to the support beams where a huge hole has been blown, jump down to the floor below you. Then jump down to the one below that. You can explore the ground levels. You can even walk through the giant spools.

Mike the cowboy
The first time you see Mike (Vlad's friend), he will be helpful. Much later, you will have to fight him. To avoid that fight against Mike, let him take care of every mobster in Ragnarok. He should get killed. If this does not happen, after the final Mob fight, kill him just after the intermission sequence that presents the names of Vlad and Vincent. You should be able to take care of three to four enemies without his help.

Extra Uzi
When you just enter the warehouse and see the little cubicle with the television inside, go a few yards to the right and climb on top of the boxes. Jump across and you will get an Uzi.

Extra pain killers
At the start of the game, turn around and open the middle locker. Inside will be two bottles of pain killers to take whenever needed.

Apartment memorial
During the level where you have to find a member of the inner circle in a fancy apartment complex, go to the part where two cleaners are outside the window on the lift. Kill them both and jump down from ledge to ledge until you reach the bottom. Run along the edge of the building until you hear a shotgun blast from the inside and see someone flying out of a window. Kill the cleaner in his apartment but do not go in. Continue along the buildings edge for slightly longer and you will find an open window. Inside, is a memorial for someone.

The policemen will make comments to Max and they will get mad at him, but will not actually do anything.

Help from the goonies
In the chapter where you get some "help" by a few of the goonies, use the following tricks. When they shoot their guns, stay behind them. Secondly, let them take care of all the cleaners and masked men (which will lead into the following tip). If there are any remaining, have an automatic gun ready and cap all of them. One of the goonies will be reminded of your name being Max Payne and they will turn on you.

Surviving in Dead Man Walking mode
Choose the first Dead Man Walking level. You will start behind a van. When you just enter the level, quickly get the painkillers and go behind the van where you started. Use your camera with intelligence to see when the enemy is coming. Quickly enter slow motion and kill him with a quick weapon. Then, repeat the procedure. When they die, go in bullet time and get the weapon. When the enemy number starts growing, use your grenades and Molotovs. Note: Bullet time, and not shootdodging, is very essential to stay alive in the first place. Use it wisely.

Theme song
Play the piano with the dead body on top of it. Max will attempt to play his theme song.

Television shows
If you are near a television, you can see a show that somehow reflects your life. The one that most copies your life is "Address Unknown".

Kill Vlad:
As the battle starts, equip your MP5 and enter the scope mode. Look above the Vlad's location to see four cylinder-like wooden pipes holding the sitting-place (the square-like place that Vlad is on). Shoot the wooden pipes and they will fall out of their places. Remember to dodge Vlad's dynamite. As you shoot the last pipe, the sitting-place will fall down but Vlad is still out of your view. Look up again to see four more wooden pipes that are preventing a large pillar from falling down. Shoot the pipes out and the pillar will fall down, making Vlad move aside avoiding the pillar. After that Vlad, is in your view. Equip any desired weapon (M4 Carbine recommended) and finish him off. Note: Beware of Vlad's molotov burning bombs.

Apartment memorial:
During the level where you have to find a member of the inner circle in a fancy apartment complex, go to the part where two cleaners are outside the window on the lift. Kill them both and jump down from ledge to ledge until you reach the bottom. Run along the edge of the building until you hear a shotgun blast from the inside and see someone flying out of a window. Kill the cleaner in his apartment but do not go in. Continue along the buildings edge for slightly longer and you will find an open window. Inside, is a memorial for someone.
